  • 3 Red Bell Peppers


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment or a Silpat Mat for easier clean up.
  • Wash and pat dry your red bell peppers.
  • Place your peppers onto the sheet pan a few inches apart.
  • Place into the oven and allow to puff up and get blackened and blistered.
  • Turn peppers with a pair of thongs about every 5-7 minutes to ensure each side gets blistered. You can take the pan out of the oven to do so or reach in with your thongs to turn the peppers if you feel comfortable with this.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes.
  • You will know your peppers are done when they are soft, all sides are blistered and they have slightly collapsed.
  • Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool. They will completely collapse once removed from the oven.
  • After cool enough to handle begin to remove the skins. You will simply peel and remove the skins leaving only the red flesh.
  • Open your pepper and remove the seeds and stem.
  • You can now slice your peppers and store them or leave them whole and store them whole.
  • Enjoy!


  • You will find that some methods for roasting peppers require you to place them in a bowl with a towel over them after roasting to peel the skins. I have never found this to be necessary and have never had any issues with the skins peeling off. If you are worried about this you can place your peppers in a bowl right after roasting and place a kitchen towel over them. Allow them to set for 10 minutes, then peel.
